Princess Beatrice to join FT on work experience

It may be the king of business newspapers but the Financial Times is set to get some help from a genuine royal.

According to MediaGuardian, Princess Beatrice, daughter of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and the fifth in line to the throne, is to join the old pink lady on work experience.

Beatrice, 19, will reportedly write for the paper’s Alphaville blog and How To Spend It lifestyle supplement, proving that even Royals have to do a little work for free to get a foot on the Fleet Street ladder.

The Guardian also reported in February that Prince William was considering a work placement on a national paper.

Press Gazette offers work experience to students from all walks of life – Royal Family members also welcome – and interested parties should read the guidelines and get in touch.
